Education & Outreach Volunteers

In addition to Greenwood’s mission to rehabilitate and release wild animals, we also strive to educate the public by emphasizing humane solutions to human/wildlife interactions. Our Education-Outreach Volunteers visit schools, events and other organizations to teach ways to coexist with our wildlife neighbors. Anyone with an earnest desire to educate the community about these issues is welcome to volunteer.

Community outreach programs are scheduled frequently and volunteers should be available to attend preferred events. Greenwood strives to reach schools, local organizations and events in and around Boulder County.

Ways to Get Involved

There are many ways for you to get involved in our outreach program.

Do you enjoy talking to people?
Sign up to sit at our display tables at outreach events. You can pass out brochures and share wildlife stories with the public.

Do you like working with kids?
Sign up to visit schools and present programs, or work with schools to schedule visits.

Do you enjoy working quietly behind the scenes?
Sign up to help us advertise outreach events by putting out fliers on community bulletin boards, or help us write curriculum to meet the Colorado State Education Standards and the E Guidelines to environmental education.

Requirements

Volunteers should be energetic, outgoing individuals willing to help Greenwood Wildlife Rehabilitation Center further its mission. They should possess good social skills and an earnest desire to educate others. A background in education or public speaking is a plus.

Why Volunteer for the Education and Outreach Team?

Volunteers are a valuable resource at Greenwood, and play an integral role in many of our projects. As an Education-Outreach Volunteer, you are helping Colorado’s wildlife by educating your community while learning something yourself! You are also supporting Greenwood and promoting awareness of its mission. This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to work with the public or children.
